ROAD TO SOCHI
After making his Olympic debut at the Vancouver 2010 Games, Fogt spent one year deployed in Iraq before returning for the 2011-12 season. He made a strong bid for a spot on the USA-1 men’s team, staking his claim as the fastest push athlete in the country with a victory at the 2013 National Push Championships.
